We are happy to help you spread the word on missing or found pets and regularly help to update furries and their owners through social media.
For LOST pets please try to include a photo, a description including name, breed, colour, distinctive marks, if your pet was wearing a collar or is microchipped, and where and when you last saw it.
For FOUND pets, we would advise that you do not post a photo, but a brief description (breed / basic colour) and where and when you found or spotted the animal. This will mean that any potential claimants can describe their pet more fully to you and you can be confident that the animal is theirs to claim!
Others will be able to help you better than we can. Here are some useful contacts:
If you have found a lost animal, please take it to a vet or to the RSPCA to check if it is microchipped.
